We spent 3 nights with our 2 chlildren from 19 to 22 August 2016. We do not recommend this hotel as our room on the street was wery noisy (up to 3 AM), which is not acceptable for such level of price (around 250 €/night/room). Besides, the breakfast is average with almost no service (we had to prepare ourself our... More

The Hotel is the right place to stay if you like the old Bergen and its Hansa history. The wooden house has hardly any straight walls or corridors and you could think that you jumped back in time several hundred years. But the rooms are very stylish and modern Bathrooms. Also the TV is absolute latest technology. Perfect place as... More

We booked two junior suites via booking.com and wanted to cancel a few hours later because it would not fit with a fjordsafari the following morning. The employee was extremely understanding and cancelled the booking at no cost, even though booking.com told us we would not get any money back. Thank you so much, will definitely book here again!

I had concerns staying here given the mixed reviews- most stating that the experience was largely determined by what room one ended up staying in; I switch rooms after the first night and the second room was poor consolation. Room one, a suite gave out onto a large airshaft like space where the restaurant vents pumped in the smell of... More

Right there at the old harbour. Expensive room turned out to be in the attic. Be prepared to haul your own luggage op some stairs. Decent room, not big. Bathroom adequate. Minibar well stocked. Ear plugs on your pillow is always a warning, and indeed lots of noise friday night.. No airco, and poor ventilation from small attic windows high... More

Det Hanseatiske hotel is billed as 5-star but is a bit off that rating, more like 4 star. There are plusses: it is situated at pole centre of the tourist buzz, yet quietly located in a short cul-de-sac just off the Bryggen quay; staff are helpful; comfort is good; good breakfast buffet. But the facilities are a bit tired (a... More

Our room was spacious and quaint with a modern bathroom with a footed soaking tub. We wished we had planned more time in this location. The desk staff were very helpful and friendly. We were always given useful information when asking those touristy questions.

Just steps from the famous fish market and on the edge of the old town. Huge room, great staff, wonderful breakfast and reliable wifi . The room came with ear plugs on both night stands. When the bars close about 2 am, it is quite loud. Would be happy to return to this hotel. Quieter rooms are on the back... More

We didn't do too much research on booking on bergen but glad we lucked out here! Literally at the best part of Bryggen - fish market, microbrewery, shoppes, restaurants - and it was a quiet stay. We were on the 4th floor and even though it was rainy, since it was so close to what we wanted to see, it... More

When you enter this lovely hotel you don't quite know whether it is old or special. It's special! Besides all the objective qualities (location, breakfast, atmosphere, rooms, service etc) the management cares. We arrived after a terrible accident in Oslo on the first day of a two week tour of Norway and needed a wheelchair. Eric did everything to find... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A stay at the Hanseatic Hotel is a very special experience. We have invested all our expertise and passion into creating this high quality hotel, situated at Bryggen in Bergen. With its location at the very heart of historic Bergen, the hotel is ideally placed, whether you are travelling on business or pleasure. The Hanseatic Hotel is not your 'standard' hotel. The hotel has been built on historic ground within the Finnegaarden Trading House at Bryggen, which is inscribed on Unesco's list of World Heritage Sites. We have retained the wharf style and architecture, and the old timber walls have been preserved in several places.Every room is uniqe!We can offer 37 characterful double rooms featuring exclusive furniture and unique bathrooms, creating an interior that is redolent of the time when Bryggen was a Hanseatic port. The Hanseatic Hotel will appeal to those looking for more than a standard A4 hotel, and who wish to spoil themselves in attractive and charming surroundings. As the city's most outstanding hotel and restaurant complex, we want our guests' stay to be memorable and can offer delicious culinary treats that will appeal to every taste. We have several restaurants serving exquisite traditional and international cuisine, a cosy lobby bar, in addition to excellent conference facilities and free WiFi.Our hotel and restaurants, as well as our conference facilities, with their unique character and central location, make for an out-of-the-ordinary experience. We can organise every type of privatefunction, from weddings to confirmations and Christmas buffets. A short distance from the hotel is the famous Fish Market (Fisketorget), where seafood connoisseurs mingle. Another popular tourist attraction is the Fløibanen Funicular. The airport bus and the railway station are just a short distance away.Welcome to a memorable hotel and culinary experience! ... more   less
